A theatrical tribute to Stephen Hawking
Paying homage to the undying spirit of Stephen Hawking, the genius who recently passed away, The Subrung Theatre Group is staging a show of their play 'Har Guruvar', a Hindi play inspired by Mitch Album's best selling world classic: "Tuesdays with Morrie" on April 20, from 7:30 p.m. onward at Shri Ram Centre, Mandi House.
This inspiring play tells the story of a man, 'Professor Sapre' who is dying because of Motor Neuron Disease, which, only a few days ago, took the life of Stephen Hawking. But that's not the only thing they have in common. Like Hawking, Sapre refuses to let impending death bog him down.
Prof Sapre likes Hawking because he lived his life to the fullest in spite of suffering from Motor Neuron Disease.
The play was directed by Rajinder Nath, multiple National award winner and a Hindi theatre personality regarded as indispensable for contemporary Indian drama.
This popular play has not only received critical praise but was also invited by the National School of Drama to participate in the 8th Theatre Olympics, where the play was performed in front of a full house audience.
The cast of the play includes names like Manu Sikander Dhingra, Sanjiv Johri, Mala Kumar, Rekha Malhotra Johri and others.
